Four intelligent pitch effects in a stompbox!

Meet the BOSS PS-6 Harmonist effects pedal, with four intelligent pitch-shift effects and three-voice harmony in one convenient unit. Among the effect modes are Harmony, Pitch Shifter, and Detune, plus the all-new Super Bend for authentic pedal-bending effects and wild 3- and 4-octave pitch sweeps. With the PS-6 Harmonist, you can even control pitch with an optional expression pedal.

The Harmony function is fast and simple to use, and supports a variety of interval patterns. It's easy to create rich, 3-voice harmonies: choose a major or minor key, and set the Shift to 3-VOICE-that's it! The PS-6 Harmonist is an unbeatable combination of superior sound quality, ease of use, and powerful pitch effects, all under one hood.

Higher Sound Quality
The BOSS PS-6 Harmonist is the new-generation pedal for harmony shifting. Sound quality has been improved dramatically thanks to its powerful DSP. With the PS-6, you can render complex harmony voicings beautifully, naturally, and easily.

3-Voice Harmony, Detune, and Pitch-Shift
The PS-6 Harmonist can generate 2 or 3 voices, such as direct/third/fifth, in each of the following modes: Pitch Shifter, Detune, and Harmony. This will add rich depth to your guitar sound. Detune broadens the sound in a natural way, as the PS-6 allows 3-voice detuning with slightly raised and lowered pitch added to the direct signal. Voices can also be pitch-shifted one octave up and a fifth below your note-great for arpeggio-style playing, for example.

Super Bend
This amazing effect bends pitch across a 7-octave span, from -3 to +4 octaves! Set the Rise and Fall time to your taste. You can control the bending effect in real time with the pedal's knob or from an external pedal such as Roland's EV-5 Expression Pedal (sold separately).

Easy Operation
Manipulate a wide variety of effects using simple operations. In Harmony mode, for example, all you have to do is select the key, specify whether it's major or minor, and use the SHIFT knob to select the voicing you want to use. The Shift knob switches between the different pitch settings available in each mode.

Road-Tough BOSS
BOSS compact pedals are world-famous for their great sound as well as their road-tough construction, consistency, and reliability. The PS-6 inherits this BOSS-proven design, offering guitarists a solidly constructed pedal that's built to withstand decades of demanding use.

  • Four effect modes in one stompbox: Harmony, Pitch Shifter, Detune, and S-BEND (Super Bend)

  • Just AMAZING!!!

    As reviewed by dantheman on 11/30/2010

    this is one of the coolist toy a guitarist can have have in his rig. if your the only guitarist and always wanted to have some play harmony with you while leading, get this bad boy. its just beautiful. the way it just captures the sound from your guitar makes it really sound like there is a second guitar or 3 guitar players playing together. and sounds so tight together tht whatever u do it does. its just really fun to mess aroud with also. have fun with it. =)

  • Not bad at-all, try it with a keyboard for even more usage

    As reviewed by lukeluke on 1/27/2011

    I got the Boss PS-6 and have been pleased with it so far. It's really several pedals in one. The "Detune feature" acts as a chorus of sorts (I now use the PS-6 as my chorus pedal). The S-Bend is a lot of fun and creates a very unique sound (especially through a keyboard). Pitch shifter is pretty self explanatory, and it works very well. The harmony function works well also, although in my experience it struggles with the "low" harmonies, slightly. Overall a great pedal. Like I have said throughout, I think it works great with a keyboard as well. Especially the harmony feature (you can set it from minor to major keys very easily. Recommended.

  • buy it. now.

    As reviewed by james stark on 2/5/2011

    I got this pedal a month ago, and wow, was i impressed. it's only downfall is that for the harmony feature you will need two amps for best results. Also, you will need to select the key you are in and if you want it to harmonize in minor/major, so basic music theory knowledge is required. The super bend mode is unique and effective, but be careful of how much you use it and where you use it, on the higher frets it is less effective. Very smooth while switching on and off, nice job boss. Features-5 Reliability-5 Sound-4[sometimes sounds digital, which can be a good or bad thing]
